The Chocobo is a species of enemy in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift. They come in many different variants, most with their own special abilities.
Their Chocobo Wiles skillset contains a variety of offensive and supportive skills, which be used by the moogle job Chocobo Knight, which can ride chocobos. To do this, a chocobo must be in critical health and unaffected by any buffs (such as Berserk) or debuffs. The Chocobo Knight is required to move to a tile adjacent to the wounded chocobo and select the Mount command.
The different breeds of chocobo appear in different regions at different parts of the year, but each breed can also appear randomly in the mission "Seeding the Harvest".
